Code of Student Conduct

The Code of Conduct applies principally to conduct that occurs on College owned or leased property, at College related activities or facilities, or on College sponsored trips. Off-campus conduct, including inappropriate or unsafe behavior in a clinical setting, may also subject a student to disciplinary or other appropriate administrative action where it is reasonably perceived to pose an imminent threat of harm or safety of the student or others or reflects on a student‘s fitness to continue in the academic program in which she or he is enrolled. or is perceived to have an adverse effect on college/community relations. This includes violation of State, Federal, or local law. The institution will provide no sanctuary for those who violate with such laws and will fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in such cases. The college reserves the right to discipline students charged or convicted of criminal violations.

Students are fully responsible for acts in violation of this Code that are committed in ignorance of it or under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or improperly used controlled substances.

Every effort has been made to assure the accuracy of the information in this handbook. Students and others who use the handbook should note that laws, rules and policies change from time to time due to changes in Federal or state statutes or by rules and polices adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Vermont State College system, by the Chancellor or by the President or designee of the institution and that these changes may alter the information contained in this publication.

Students shall have the opportunity to participate in the formulation of policy directly affecting students through membership on appropriate committees as determined by the President or other recognized groups within the College.
